Red and Orange Ball Junior Series Event
Red and Orange Ball Junior Series Event24 Dec 2021
Saturday, 16th October
At 11am, we started with the third round of the Junior series Red Ball tournament. 8 players under the age of 8 competed in a Round Robin format. This allows the children to gain valuable competition experience by playing a match against every player. The youngest competitor at the age of 4 did an amazing job and was full of energy and fought hard for every ball.
We had new and returning players joining the tournament, and the overall standard of play was exceptional, with many of the games being very close, coming down to a deciding point.
Karios Johnston won 1st Place, Taylor Booth came in 2nd and Hugh Cheng finished 3rd.
Following the red ball event, the older children (under 9 years old) came in for the Orange Ball tournament.
The young talent coming through the programme at this level at the moment is fantastic. They are really enjoying their tennis and competition. This tournament also consisted of 8 players and once again allowed for a lot of matches to be played over the two hour time slot.
Jake Long put in a dominant performance to win all his matches and take home 1st prize. A close second, 5 points behind was Callum Ewing and coming in 3rd Place was Jackson Guenot.
The quality of the tennis was amazing and very entertaining for the parents. A great day of tennis in both Red and Orange ball competitions was had by all! We are looking forward to finals of the mini tennis series to be held in early December.
